Cooking, like taking a pop quiz and defusing a bomb on national television, is often a source of stress. Disarm your hunger with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of seafood, American fare, and drinks during dinner at Al's Tiki Bar and Grill in North Fort Myers.
Accessible by boat or car, Al's Tiki Bar and Grill immerses guests in an island-tinged culinary experience marked by waterfront views, fresh grilled fare, and live music peppered throughout the week. Using Pavlov's theory of appetizers, chefs cause taste buds to salivate with house-cut, beer-battered onion rings ($4.95) or Al's Beach bread, piled with herbs, melted blue cheese, and tomato on a toasted baguette. For entrees, diners can savor the marinade from the jamaican jerk chicken ($10.95) or juggle between the surf 'n' turf's new york strip steak, 1 pound of snow-crab legs, vegetables, and jasmine-rice pilaf ($24.95). The kitchen also silences stomach grumbles with sandwiches, burgers, and kebabs, such as the bamboo-skewered hawaiian pork-tenderloin kebab with bell peppers ($10.95). In between bites, guests can tune their ear trumpets to live jams during weekly performances.
